Blue Scale Quail, Callipepla Squamata, are brilliantly colored native game birds of North America. Blue Scale Quail are sometimes called "Cotton Tops" as the feathers on their heads appear cottony, fluffy, and light especially on a sunny day. But they are mainly known for their blue scales - they have shiny blue-gray feathering with elegant black lacing, resembling scales, covering most of their bodies. Females are similar to males in coloration. 

Blue Scale Quail are active birds and sound runners, being able to reach speeds of 15 miles per hour. Blue Scale Quail tend to run, rather than fly if startled. In the winter, Blue Scale Quail will gather into large coveys or flocks, which sleep together for warmth and protection. 

The wild native range of Blue Scale Quail is south-western U.S. as well as northern and central Mexico. They usually inhabit open, dry grassland and scrubby desert areas.

Blue Scale Quail are adaptable and hardy birds and do very well in captive environments. They need space and should not be kept in wet conditions. Providing your Blue Scale Quail with roosting space, as well as sheltering shrubbery or brush would be ideal. Feeding a non-medicated game bird starter crumble would be appropriate.
